Kisii university has been declared broke by the university vice Chancellor Professor Akama. The financial crisis facing Kisii university is not something easy to go about. It's real in a crisis which requires a lot of resources to solve.
The fire financial situation has made it difficult in service delivery in the university. A university endowed with resources at the heart of Kisii town has not made it to the dream. It was expecting to deliver education and new skills to the entire gusii region.
However,this dream has been affected as the university swims in a series of demonstrations. Last month, the students went on rampage. They wanted to be allowed to elect their new leaders. The university promised to do that. They were also demanding to be given exams. The university claims that there are no funds to run the exams in the university.
Lecturers have also threatened to go on strike. They haven't been paid for quite months now.
Professor Akama said the university was given 202 million shilings. It has already used 190 million shilings. The 12 million shilings is left for emergencies, noted Akama.
Uasu Kisii chapter are alleging the university administration of awarding themselves huge allowances in the expense of learners. They said, if money isn't in the university, why are they awarding themselves huge allowances. The university losses taste for the comrades and the society.
The members requested Francis Atwoli, the cabinet secretary for education and the one for labour to come for their help.
We wish them all the best. Thanks
